artchoosestheartist asked: I'm so sorry you are getting attacked right now. I love your blog. Please keep posting all that you do. Much Love.
Awww, thank you! I love you for being so kind. ♥
I really have gotten only got one rude message, and I’m not upset at all. My new policy is just to block them, & never give them space in my head again. I don’t care if people don’t agree with me about every little thing. I have my own ideas, and I’m not going to be quiet because they may be unpopular opinions.
Oi, keep your head up. Your the 4th person going through some stuff today. It’s a beautiful day, what’s with the hate coming up and the rudeness? You’d think people would be happy that the cold is gone (in some places. Sorry some places).
I have a good friend of mine who is of one religion, (for the sake of keeping this from becoming a bashing of any kind or people hip firing nonsense and hate at me I’ll keep her labels Religion), who is dating a guy who believes in another religion. She seems happy, and I’m glad for her. However from talking to her, I can feel and her the underlined tone of fear due to their different views. I can understand why. Considering the path she chose to walk, isn’t one favored by most while his is more mainstream (don’t hate me). The guy seems to care for my friend greatly and that to me is awesome. She’s been through some shit and deserves it. Deserves to have someone, deserves to be happy. So why do people let their views on religion ruin, or better yet, allow there paths of religion to let crumble the foundation they created in a relationship? What does it matter? Why should it matter?
Maybe I’m just to ignorant or arrogant to understand because to me, you believe in what you want to believe. Your religion is your thing. I’m happy to talk about it, I’ll even be respectful and say whatever greeting or farewell or whatever it is back. Example is my family was raised catholic and so was I. However I no longer follow that path. I believe in a higher power or powers (some associate this with God or Gods and Goddesses) is out there because to me, there’s shit that goes down in life, and in this world that no man or science can figure out. That to me is the “Greater Power” in the universe. Anyway, the difference in what I believe and in what others believe doesn’t stop me from saying “God bless you” or anything like that to those who believe in him or my family. It’s called respect. Respect a persons belief. I don’t think it would kill you or damn your eternal soul for being polite and respectful to someone and his or her belief.
Moving on, it goes into the hate, and the cursing. Seriously. We all know it. Go on Facebook. Find a post about anything random and holy shit it’s like you walked into a Holy War for that Facebook post but only verbal. Give them weapons and I bet they would kill each other. That’s ridiculous. People. Live YOUR life. Not others. Worry about YOUR life and your bloodline. Worry for those close to you. If you are just a awesome person at heart and you care for everyone and everything that’s cool. Stay that way. But for shits sake, don’t shove your belief down that persons throat. Don’t hate, dislike, be rude, or a anything just because you and someone have different beliefs. That’s just shitty. Regardless of the who, whom, what, a person prays to it doesn’t mean they are anything more or less than what we all are.
We bleed, we feel, we smile, and cry like everyone else. So fuck this separation nonsense because he doesn’t believe in your faith or she doesn’t share your belief. Why should it matter? It shouldn’t. Our jobs is to believe, spread the word. Not hate, dislike, and privately damn or curse those that don’t. If they don’t want to talk about their religion, respect it. If they don’t want to talk about religion in general, respect it. We barely evolved from racism. I think we’ve as individuals have come a long way from that but we are not blind that it’s haunting last still lives today.
Hating or disliking someone because of their choice of faith… To me is no different than hating someone because of their skin color. It’s not like that person next to you, your friend states away or whomever the person is, is out to kill you for the sake of their religion. So why despise? Why be fake? Why go back on all the morals and life lessons you’ve learned and been taught sense you were able to understand how to talk, change just because that friend, family member, or significant other believes in something you don’t?
The answer should be clear by now. It shouldn’t.
I’m not here to tell you how to live, how to think or what to feel. I’m simply ranting out of hurt for my friend and other people out there who are going through this, have gone through this, continue to grow through this, and unfortunately will go through it.
Live YOUR life. Be YOURSELF. Not what the world or others want you to be.
Live for today.
Live for the moment.
Or die miserable.
To my friend who I know is reading this. Keep your head up. You know for better or for worse, I got your back.
